Ecotrust develops innovative economic solutions that promote environmental sustainability and social equity.
For more than twenty years, we’ve been proving it’s possible to create healthy economies and resilient communities by embracing the connection between human, environmental and economic well-being. The results are extraordinarily compelling.
Projects in fisheries, forest carbon and housing have developed replicable economic models with catalytic potential. But much more work has to be done.
Like others around the world, we’ve witnessed how easily progress can be unraveled when viable alternatives to broken economic models aren’t readily available. We need to ensure that promising innovations become available to all communities.
By supporting Ecotrust Canada, you make that possible. With your support we can develop new replicable solutions and scale the impact of those that have proven to be transformative.
Changing systems is hard - but not impossible. Together we can build the healthy, resilient and sustainable communities of tomorrow.
